I COULDN’T RESIST (which is, of course, why Snoop Dogg made the video, right?–to get all of us “gardeners” into the fold, or at least to his upcoming concert in Cardiff, Wales). I would bet my garden harvest that this is the first video to combine Brassica napobrassica, the giant rutabaga (the British call them “swedes”), with Cannabis sativa, which Snoop Dogg calls “vegetation”–as in “I do vegetation myself, and I want to know your secret.” Whose secret does Snoop want? That of Welshman Ian Neale, whose prize-winning “swede” was 85.5 pounds–and awaits confirmation as a world record. The story on that is here.

Thanks, Brian, for the alert — I missed it! Good thing I have you to watch out for me. :)
That swede is one scary looking veggie!
Leave it to Snoop to be high on life and gardening… it’s nice to see the correlation Super-stardom and super gardening. Way to go Ian!!!
